Shutdown Special: Weinstein Co. Offering Free Tickets for 'Inequality for All' to Federal Employees, Military
U.S. government workers who find themselves with too much time on their hands today due to the government shutdown can treat themselves to a free movie.
The Weinstein Company and Landmark Theatres are offering federal employees and members of the military free tickets to Radius-TWC's doc Inequality for All at 13 Landmark Theatres across the country. The deal, announced by The Weinstein Co., is good for Thursday only.
The film, which premiered at Sundance, follows former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he investigates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy.
The Weinstein Co.'s Radius label acquired the documentary at the Utah festival. Jacob Kornbluth (2004 Sundance title The Best Thief in the World) directed the pic.
This is the second step Hollywood has made to ease the pain felt by 800,000 workers who have been furloughed. On Tuesday, AMC announced it will offer federal employees a free small popcorn because of the U.S. government shutdown.
